Well, not everybody. Stephen, a guy I work with, doesn’t see the point. Of course, in our case, parades meant a ton of overtime and not a little bit of stress in meeting deadlines.
The finished products, I believe, speak for themselves. As I have mentioned before, our shop has never built or designed a parade float previously. So of course the owner said, “Yes”!
Of course, in Jeff’s defense, everything we do in the shop, at one point in time, we never did before.
Yesterday we wrapped up the Peoples Mortgage float. Twenty-eight feet long, just shy of 15 feet tall. We purchased the fake trees and shrubs and grass and fence. Everything else was designed, fabricated and printed in house. I see this float taking a prize in Saturday’s parade.
